At the end of the day, return to your luxury tent and revel in Four Season’s signature hospitality. Look no further than Four Seasons Tented Camp for your next glamping holiday in Thailand.
RUSTIC 19TH-CENTURY ACCOMMODATION
From tents to lodges, pick your preferred accommodation during your stay at the Four Seasons Tented Camp. Regardless of which you choose, you will be greeted with picturesque views that will make you never want to leave your room. The Explorer’s Lodge is the biggest room offered, which can comfortably sleep up to 6 guests. Inspired by the 19th-century romance bygone era, you will notice the safari decor carefully positioned around the room that is sure to awaken your inner adventurer. Being located at the far end of the resort also means that you and your friends can enjoy complete privacy. This lodge is bound to fulfil all your glamping dreams.
Even without leaving your lodge, there is plenty to do; swim in your private infinity pool followed by enjoying an intimate dinner and movie under the stars in the privacy of your own lodge. As you indulge in your dinner, enjoy the views of the jungle and the calming sounds of leaves gently rustling. After which, dip into your handcrafted copper bathtub before calling it a night.
UNFORGETTABLE ELEPHANT ESCAPADES
This resort in Thailand also gives you the once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with elephants. So if you are a great elephant lover, you definitely shouldn’t miss out on this chance to take part in one (or more) of the six elephant experiences offered.
There is no better way to understand these gentle giants than by bathing, walking, and feeding them. Being at such intimate levels with these creatures will transform you into a mahout, or an elephant whisperer. If you prefer not to feed the elephants but yourself instead, have breakfast at Camp Peak. But be prepared as you will have to first hike to the Four Seasons Tented Camp’s summit through a jungle even before day breaks. As you enjoy the sunrise while having your breakfast, you will be gently interrupted by the sounds of your elephant friends indulging in their own breakfast buffet of fruits and vegetables.
There are so many other activities offered at this Thai resort that you will not have to worry if you are not a fan of elephants. You may opt for a relaxing 90-minute spa experience, where you will be given a treatment of your choice, or you can cruise down the Mekong river in a traditional longboat to see the sights that the Golden Triangle has to offer.
Or if you are more of a thrill-seeker, you can go jungle trekking, forage walking, or even visit hill tribes in Laos and Myanmar. Private Thai cooking classes can also be arranged as you learn how to make several northern Thai dishes (Farm-To-Table style) with herbs and spices grown at the Four Seasons Tented Camp’s very own organic garden.
You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to dining at this hotel in Thailand. At Nong Yao, you will be treated to the finest of Thai, Myanmese, and Laotian cuisines. Seated in a breezy pavilion with rustic hardwood floors, this restaurant adds to the whole glamping experience. Nong Yao serves the traditional Thai papaya salad commonly found in Thai restaurants, but with their own unique twist to it. The Som Tam Pu Nim is a traditional young papaya salad served with crispy deep-fried soft-shell crab. This sweet, sour, crispy combination is sure to leave you wanting more.
The Camp Pad Siew is also a great option for those who do not take seafood. Flat rice noodles are fried in a wok and served with chicken and vegetables. If the breeze at the pavilion gets to you, warm yourself up by ordering a piping hot bowl of Tom Saab Gai, a Laotian chicken soup.
For some post-dinner drinks, head to the Burma Bar where you will be able to enjoy a cocktail while overlooking the luxuriant river basin.
If glamping has always been on your bucket list, you can now strike it off as Four Seasons Tented Camp will provide the ultimate glamorous camping experience for you. From rustic style accommodations to thatched roof restaurants, you are sure to feel as if you are out in the woods from the comfort of your leather sofa. Four Seasons Tented Camp is a four-hour drive from Chiang Mai, Thailand’s second largest city. To ensure that you won’t have to be at the mercy of the car for four hours, hire a private car so that the driver can take you there. The Travel141 International Car Rental service will be launching soon, so do subscribe to our newsletter below in order to receive regular updates.
